Default Painting the cart?

1985 gas G1 needs a paint job. Have heard about people using herculiner, or even a paint made by plastidip (the company that makes a rubberized paint that you can dip the handles of your tools into). I want something that will be low maintenance, yet durable, and not look too bad! Any suggestions? Pics? Thanks!

Some guys have prepped and painted their buggies just like you would a show car, and they look fabulous. Some guys have used truck bed liner or rubberized spray undercoating for a bulletproof coating. Others have used rattle-can paint with good results. It depends on what you want for results and how much time and money you want to put into it. The buggy in my avatar was done with Rustoleum spray can paint. Check out the Members Rides section for some ideas.

I clear coated one like a car, it was a fair amount of work taking all the panels off and preparing them but it held up well. I should do mine but it is still white. I'd rather put a big block in it lol.

Walmart camo paint. Has held up really good too my surprise. And virtually no prep work before painting. Just washed it. Didn't think it would hold up but didn't really care. I run my cart through brush all the time and use it to bush hog with.

They are lawn tractor seats. They had cracks in the seat covers so I got them real cheap. I just need to make covers for them to hide the cracks and blend with the camo paint job.
